Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety advises the university community that too much sun exposure can cause undesirable health effects. The summer season means swimming, fishing, suntanning and vacations at the beach. However, sunburns are uncomfortable and painful, and the impact of such exposure can cause peeling skin, skin rash and skin cancer. There are many precautions one should take to protect the skin from the sun's UVR (ultraviolet radiation). Try to reduce sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. (e.g., schedule outdoor sporting events for early evening; if you’re a jogger, jog early in the morning). Seek shade or create your own shade (e.g., choose outdoor cafés with umbrellas or covered porches). Wear clothes to cover your arms and legs.  Apply sunscreen with minimum SPF #15 or higher. (This is especially beneficial for individuals who spend extended periods of time outside.)

Facts to remember:

  • Exposure to solar and artificial UVR is widely recognized as a major and preventable cause of skin cancer.
  • The main source of UVR is the sun. Young people are at particular risk, due to their high levels of sun exposure and low levels of protective behaviors. Young adults account for a disproportionate number of outdoor workers, such as lifeguards, tree planters, student painters, camp counselors, etc., and therefore may be overexposed to UVR, particularly during spring and summer.
